Aloha! We landed in Oahu, Hawaii on Sunday, just in time for my birthday. The 11-hour flight from New York City was no joke but it was certainly worth it. We flew on Hawaiian Airlines for this trip. We checked two bags (both mine), plus each of our carry-on luggage. It was hard packing my […]
Happy Friday lovelies! Can you believe we’re almost through the end of April? Where did the time go? I for one am excited for this month to come to a close because I get to celebrate my birthday on April 29th. I will be in O’ahu, Hawaii for two glorious weeks basking in the sun […]
I’m a sucker for subscription boxes. Why? Because I get to discover and try new beauty products on a monthly basis without spending too much money on individual products at the store. I shared my love of beauty box subscriptions a while back in this post and I’m adding another to the list. Cosmopolitan magazine’s […]
I packed a generous beauty kit for the trip because I planned on hitting the various haunts in all of Miami with the boy, all of which required different looks. I decided to share my beauty and skin care travel kit to help out anyone traveling to a warmer climate this winter.
My skin has been acting u a bit since my week long trip to Atlanta in June. I spent countless hours lounging at the pool and for some reason, my sunscreen didn’t give me adequate coverage. I got back to NYC with a crisp tan and skin peeling to go with it. My face was […]
I’m a big supporter of women in business, especially ones who strive to use the best resources to make their products great. A few years ago, my friend Brandon introduced me to his wife’s soap and scrub collection. We lost touch for a bit until a few months ago, when he reached out to let […]
One of my resolutions for 2015 is to take my skincare game to the next level. For some reason my skin started acting really wonky towards the end of the year with some massive breakouts that were out of the ordinary. I am talking about chin, cheeks (several locations) as well as my forehead, where […]
Shea butter is a hot ingredient nowadays. From body scrubs and hair treatments to hand creams and cleansers, this African nut has become a hot commodity in the beauty industry. Shea is extracted from the seeds in the fruits of the Shea or Karite tree grown in West and Central sub-Saharan Africa. The word “Shea” […]
Eczema is a huge issue in my family, especially my little brothers, who have suffered from this skin disorder for years. As a sufferer of dry skin – not as bad as theirs – I go through lotion like a marathoner goes through water. For the past few years, I have been super careful what […]
“How do you know of your sunscreen is working?” my cousin Louise asked me a few months ago. “Well if you don’t tan or burn after playing in the sun all day long, you know it’s working,” I replied. The truth is, I don’t know for sure if my SPF is going to ward off […]
Skin care has been a top priority on my list since the first zit sprouted on my face as a tween. Until I began blogging in 2007, my beauty routine was limited to African black soap (still a must), toner, moisturizer and an SPF. I spent more money on Chanel nail polishes and MAC pigments […]
As a lotion aficionado, I’ve moisturized my skin with a myriad of lotions, some I’ve bought repeatedly and others I’ve ended up tossing after first sniff. But as a beauty junky, there are times when the thick goopy stuff just won’t do. Say you need to lotion your back and your college roomie or boyfriend […]
